Do someone know how to use this method without using visual studio ?
using only nx journal

Thank you.

CODE -->

'In Visual Studio, you basically include this module in your project. You also include the
' .dlx file in your project and set the build action for the .dlx to "Embedded Resource".
' You make a small modification to the definition of the .dlx filename
' in your block styler code and the tool take care of the rest.
'The function writeDlxResourceToTemp() loops through all of the resources
' in your project looking for a .dlx. When it finds it, it writes a copy
' to UGII_TMP_DIR, then returns the path to the file that it just wrote.
'File is attached. Full instructions are commented in the file and copied
' in the code block below (note that EmbedddedDLX_BS should be
' replaced with the name of your Block Styler Dialog):
'Embedded_DLX.vb - Embed DLX file into application .dll
'  History: 
'    18-Oct-2014 / Jim Bernard / created / NX 8.5
'  Description:
'    This function will write a .dlx file contained in a project as an embedded
'    resource to a temporary directory. The resulting filename is set as a
'    global variable to be used when a .dll loads a block styler dialog.
'    This provides a custom fully qualified name for the .dlx file on any
'    machine that the NX Open .dll is executed on, regardless of the location
'    (pathname) of the .dll. This removes the requirement that the .dlx file
'    be distributed with the .dll and that the .dlx file must reside in a
'    UGII application folder.
'  Instructions:
'    1) Add Embedded_DLX.vb to your Visual Studio project
'    2) Add the .dlx file to your Visual Studio project
'         - Set the Build Action to "Embedded Resource"
'    3) Modify the dlx filename definition in your block styler code
'             theDlxFileName = "xyz_BS.dlx"
'             If IO.File.Exists(tempDlxFile) Then theDlxFileName = tempDlxFile
'    4) Add the following lines to your application code to write the temporary
'         .dlx file prior to launching the dialog and to delete the temporary
'         .dlx file prior to termination
'             Sub Main()
'                 tempDlxFile = writeDlxResourceToTemp()
'                 EmbeddedDLX_BS.Main()
'                 IO.File.Delete(tempDlxFile)
'             End Sub

eBook – How to Choose the Correct Corrosion Testing Method
When designing a metal component, engineers have to consider how susceptible certain alloys are to corrosion in the final product’s operating environment. In a recent study by NACE (National Association of Corrosion Engineers), it was estimated that the direct and indirect costs of corrosion in the United States is approximately 6.2% of the GDP. In 2016, that cost exceeded $1 trillion dollars for the first time. Download Now
